The Nabil Fekir saga continues to drag on and, in the latest episode, the Lyon star has now sacked his agent following the collapse of his proposed move to Liverpool last summer.
The Reds agreed a £53million fee for the France star, who was ready to sign a five-year, £140,000-per-week contract until the French club pulled the plug on the move late on.
Football 365 report that the failed transfer to the Anfield club began the turbulence between Fekir and his representative and the forward is now looking for a new agent.
Jean-Pierre Bernes is quoted by the same report as saying it was down to a difference in opinion. “It was a choice [Fekir] took. He will certainly look for another agent,” he told radio station Europe 1.
“Like all human relationships, from time to time you can have a difference of opinion on someone’s future or their behaviour.”
“To get into one of the top 10 clubs is very difficult, you must have an approach.
“You must not place too much importance on the role of an agent. When you have a big player and a big club wants him, it is the club who come to see you. You are not soliciting interest.”
This news comes quickly after it was reported by L’Equipe (as per the MailOnline) in April that Lyon had agreed to sell Fekir in the coming transfer window.
The same report claims that a move to the Premier League is likely for the French star.
The forward has scored 12 times in 30 appearances this season and would be a fine addition to any club.
